Sundance Villas Review of the 2 small water parks attached to Paphos hotels, Laura Beach and King Evelthon
Watch our fun packed video of our time at the water parks!
The 2 small water parks are open to non-hotel residents from €15 Euro per adult. These may be useful to accustom your children to the noise, slides and splashing, before taking them to the larger Aphrodite water park. They are also ideal for villa guests who have a late return flight, with some time to kill.
Both Laura Beach and King Evelthon hotels are on the sea front in the Tombs of Kings/Kissonerga area of Paphos, between Paphos and Coral Bay. You can easily take a look inside to assess how busy they are, before you pay to go in.
The Aqua Splash Water Park is located at the 5* brand new luxurious King Evelthon Beach Hotel & Resort in Paphos.
Sundance Villas Review of the King Evelthon Hotel Aqua Splash Park, Paphos
We visited this new waterpark in early October 2016.
Having just come from the busy and noisy Laura Beach Hotel splash park, we found that it was wonderfully peaceful as it is totally separate to the grounds of the Hotel, and, as the hotel residents have to pay to use these facilities, it was almost empty. It is also situated on a massive plot so there is lots of space, providing a more calm introduction for younger or nervous children, to the water park atmosphere.
The first thing that impressed us was its cleanliness. The pools were all very clean, the water sparkled. Everything from the toilet/changing facilities, to the sun loungers and umbrellas, was clean and well maintained.
The facilities here include 7 slides: (Black Hole, Compact, Multi, Free Fall, Rafting and Space Hole) as well as a Splash Pool featuring an Octopus slide, Mini private slide, Rabbit & Frog slide, Dolphin Water Jet, Giraffe shower and water gun. There is also a Lazy River, a Jacuzzi and a beautiful large fresh water swimming pool with steps access and handrails. Cafeteria with shade. WC and showers with lockable storage at no extra charge. Free parking.
We felt there are water experiences here suitable for all ages. Single and double rings are available, the double rings (figure of 8 style) are fantastic if your child is nervous and would rather experience the slide alongside a parent.
There were lots of lifeguards around, even though it was not busy, ensuring that all of the pools were being well observed at all times.
This water park would be fantastic for young/nervous children because of the relaxed atmosphere and open spaces, especially when visiting from the seclusion of a villa rental. The open layout and space makes it much easier to keep an eye on your children.
Accessibility: One step to the entrance and then level access, suitable for wheelchair or buggy. Separate wheelchair accessible toilets and showers.
Entrance – €15.00 for adults & €10.00 for children up to 12 years.
Babies up to 3 years old are free.
Important: Clients can go in and out the park as many times you want during the day, as long as you keep your wristband on.

Water park in main grounds of Laura Beach Hotel, Paphos
Sundance Villas Review of the Laura Beach Hotel Waterpark
This water park feels a lot more condensed than the one at King Evelthon, and as we walked in, the chutes were above our heads immediately. This made us instantly aware of the participants squeals and the general splash park atmosphere. It has very similar slides and chutes as King Evelthon with the bonus of a wave pool, but no large swimming pool like King Evelthon. There are a wide variety of slides, multi-level spray areas and pools which offer something for the whole family.
When we were there it was fairly busy and this is probably because it is within the hotel grounds, on view to all the guests, so a constant lure. (We understand, as with King Evelthon, the hotel residents have to pay a supplement to use the splash park.)
Facilities include these slides: Crusader with Typhoon tunnel, Kamikaze Free Fall (see video), Multi-lane Mat Race, Float Slide, Tornado Bowl (for 16 year olds and over) and a wave pool. For smaller children there is an activity pool with slides and a toddlers pool. Snack bar. WC and showers. Free parking.
Height restriction: minimum 1.20m
Weight restriction: maximum 100kg (15.75 stone)
Single and double rings are available, the double rings (figure of 8 style) are fantastic if your child is nervous and would rather experience the slide alongside a parent.
You can buy snacks and drinks (local alcoholic and non-alcoholic), and you can also take your own food.
There were lots of lifeguards maintaining good safety at the various pools and slides.
In our opinion a big draw back is that there aren’t any lockers available here, unlike at King Evelthon.
This park is open from May to October, 7 days a week from 10am to 6pm.
May, June and October €15 adults, €10 for children (under 13 years old)
July, August and September €20 for adults, €15 for children (under 13 years old)
